The Ultra Beasts may have just entered the Pokémon Go universe right now, but their arrival has also brought about the conclusion of the Season of Light. Jirachi is said to grant a wish every thousand years if it is awoken by the song of purity but Season 9 of Pokémon Go will allow for wishes after wishes as it has aptly been titled Mythical Wishes.

Say hello to Pokémon Go’s Season 9: Mythical Wishes, which will run from December 1st to March 1st. It promises to be action-packed like its predecessors with the Make a Wish! Storyline running throughout the season. Over the four months, we will also celebrate Christmas, the Lunar New Year, and Valentine’s Day with special events.

Now, let’s launch into this season by looking at all of December’s offerings.

December Raids

Kicking off the raids this month are Virizion and Mega Abomasnow. They will be followed by Terrakion and Mega Aggron mid-month. In the latter half of December, players will find in raids Cobalion, Mega Glalie, and the powerful and legendary Pokémon Kyurem.
